Abstract


 This paper reports the results of a vascular plant inventory at the University of Oklahoma’s Kessler Atmospheric and Ecological Field Station in McClain County in the state of Oklahoma. A total of 388 taxa in 80 families were collected. Two hundred and fifty-seven genera, 361 species, and 27 infraspecific taxa were identified. The largest families were the Poaceae with 66 taxa and the Asteraceae with 55 taxa. Fifty-seven taxa were planted or non-native to the U.S. (14.7 % of the flora). Four taxa tracked by the Oklahoma Natural Heritage Inventory were found.
